It’s a hard to resist a place like this, especially one called Pie Ranch.

So why is it called Pie Ranch? There are several reasons, but mainly the land it sits on is shaped like a slice of pie + the promise of “pie” encourages city dwellers, like myself, to visit. The farm stand is open Thursday-Sunday and visitors can purchase seasonal produce, fresh eggs, and some real tasty pies made by Companion Bakeshop in Santa Cruz, which uses ingredients (like fruit and wheat) grown on the farm. They are sold as either minis or wholes—and they are yummy!

In addition to growing food for local markets and pies, this farming community acts as a youth education center and offers apprentice programs to inspire the next generation of farmers and educators.
